My Things, Rain Boots

My Things, Rain Boots by Liza Hirst

oil on canvas panel - Öl auf Malplatte - huile sur carton entoilé

sold - verkauft - vendu

With these boots I look fairly "elegant" even in pouring rain. This is my personal favourite of this series so far - I am very pleased with how it turned out.

Hey Liza,
I've been LOVING this series, and just had to tell you so! What a fantastic idea for a non-traditional self portrait! I've loved every single piece in this series so far, and I'm thinking how amazing all would look exhibited together as one large piece!!

Can't wait to see more!

Great, Liza! I like this series a lot.

Hi René,
I had to look up who she was - how funny to call one's blog "muddy red shoes"! I even thought about painting them with mud on them but then decided not to.
I am pleased you like my series - I do too.

Hey Karen,
How nice to hear from you again. It is always an honour for me to receive a comment from you, as I truly admire your paintings and your artistic skill!
In also imagine that this series would look good hung all together and am already thinking about painting a larger version.
Thank you so much!
